PSO to perform Spears’ completion of Mozart Requiem with Westminster Symphonic Choir

Posted

Edward T. Cone Music Director Rossen Milanov leads the Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) in performances of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Requiem” in a 21st-century completion by Gregory Spears the weekend of Nov. 11-12.

Performing Mozart’s masterpiece with the PSO are the Westminster Symphonic Choir and four soloists: Abigail Rethwisch, soprano; Chelsea Laggan, mezzo-soprano; Carlos Enrique Santelli, tenor; and Eric McKeever, baritone.

Leading off the program is Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw’s “Entr’acte,” a modern-day take on minuet and trio classical form, which was premiered at Princeton University in 2011 by the Brentano String Quartet.

The concerts take place at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 and 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12 at Richardson Auditorium on the campus of Princeton University. The Sunday performance will be preceded by a 3 p.m. pre-concert talk featuring Milanov and Spears.
